Limited Hours Sunday, April 28

Shooting hours will be limited on Sunday, April 28, due to the target delivery and restocking. They will be:

    Skeet 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM
    Trap 10:30 AM – 12:00 Noon

Please plan accordingly and maybe even help us move some of those targets.

More Targets to Unload

People keep shooting our targets so we keep buying more, and they have to be put away in the trap and skeet houses and the sporting clays containers.

That means we need some help. We’re going to have targets delivered and we need to get them from the main parking lot to all of those locations. We’ll have a big fork lift to move the pallets, then the boxes have to be moved into the houses one by one. We’ll have about 10 youth shooters to help but they can’t do it all.

Please plan to be at the range at 8:00 AM on Sunday, April 28, and help us continue throwing targets for you to shoot.
